State & Local Certifications


Most certifications at the state level are managed by the state DOT.  There are some states that have a Statewide Uniform Certification (SWUC) program with a special department to manage these programs.  

DBE = Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

WBE = Woman Business Enterprise

MBE = Minority Business Enterprise

SWUC = Statewide Uniform Certification

LSBE = Local Small Business Enterprise 

All local certifications are managed at the local level and vary drastically within each municipality.  There are over 3,042 counties, 14,566 districts, 31,131 special districts, 35,963 cities and townships, making it impossible for us to list every local program here.

Follow these links and then click on your appropriate state.  You will have local options from each state link to drill deeper to reach the local municipalities.
